I love all the different shops that line Main Street. There is a great mix of shops! Plenty of places to stop and rest. Definitely worth the good breakfast and good walking shoes! You will find something for everyone here.

From vintage jewelry to designer bags, from furniture to crafty items... you can find something to tempt you along this street. I have gotten unique items, amazing clothing, and gifts for girlfriends. It has become a annual girlfriend get away - shopping and the wine country!

Main street is getting better every year. New art galleries and high end boutique stores are doing a real make over. Local and national artist are represented better than ever before. Allow plenty of time for the entended main street as well as the side streets. Very much like the old Santa Fe before it declined.

A great place for family, lots to see and do. Shops in walking distant, the streets were very nice. Lots of things to do in the area for everyone in the family. Definitely a safe and happy place for the family to enjoy together.

We made a road trip from Austin to San Antonio via this village. A Long detour and planned to stop for coffee. But this lovely village made us stay for hours. The long row of shops on both side of the street were lovely. People just walked in and out the shops to see their characters. People were friendly.

We really enjoyed our weekend family stay in Fredericksburg. The Main Street area had a lot to offer in regards to food, wine, coffee, and shopping.

Overpriced trendy shops. Crowded, not enough parking, traffic was unbelievable. Rude people. Go to large flea market east of town on third weekend of each month, much more fun.

I was disappointed that there weren't German shops. There are a few places to eat German food (the old German bakery has a few pastries and such but they weren't amazing and a few other restaurants served some German food), but most of the shops just have tons of touristy Texas/Southern/cowboy items for sale. So there's not really a reason... More

Lots of pretty shops and German eateries. However there are surprisingly sophisticated galleries and restaurants. The ApeachtreevHouse wonderful, ottos and Navajos good but the one which is hands down the best owned by Richard and partner from Canada whose name I cannot now recall in middle of town hands down best
